Oddworld: Soulstorm an EGS Exclusive

Oddworld: Soulstorm is the latest title to announce an exclusivity deal with the Epic Games Store, as the game was part of the Epic Games Store gamescom 2019 Announcements Trailer. An article titled "Now Game Developers Have To Ask Fans Not To Harass Them Over The Epic Store" on Kotaku mentions this in discussing the backlash companies have to deal with in announcing such deals. The new Oddworld is the example they start with, noting that an Oddworld tweet penned by Lorne Lanning attempts to head this off at the pass. Here's a transcript of the hard-to-index picture of words:

I would like to address the entire Oddworld community (old and new). You have supported us and our artistic vision for years and we thank you.
Oddworld: Soulstorm will be coming to PC via the Epic Games store. The PC and console versions of the game will have a simultaneous release in 2020.
What I would like to do is provide you with the reasoning that went into bringing the PC version of Soulstorm to the Epic Games store as an exclusive because you deserve to know.
We've been financing Soulstorm 100% ourselves. Soulstorm is our most ambitious game ever and we are committed to creating a great game that meets the highest level of quality. But to create the version of Soulstorm we want, and you deserve, we needed additional financial assistance.
Ambition is important, and it pushes me to try and overachieve. What pushes me even more is my commitment to you: you deserve great games. As an indie publisher we must evaluate partnerships that will help up achieve our goals while protecting our vision for Soulstorm and the quintology. Epic supports our goal and commitment and is willing to help us achieve them by providing us with an advance on our PC sales, and we are incredibly grateful.
Thank you for reading.

If you did a kickstarter for your game and got people to invest in it, they it is most certainly unethical to do a store exclusive on it. If that is not obvious to you I feel sorry for you inability to grasp that fact.
